Nasty opens Lila López dance festival in Mexico

Susanna Leinonen Company has been invited to the Festival Internacional de Danza Contemporánea Lila López to open the festival with Nasty on July 26th. SLC performed at the festival for the first time in the summer of 2018 with the piece Dreams of Replay. Nasty, Susanna Leinonen’s latest choreography, is a strikingly topical work that centers on the expectations, limitations and attacks targeted at female bodies. The piece examines our bodily limits, as well as how it feels to be constantly looked at. Nasty premiered in September 2018, after which the piece has been performed numerous times both in Finland and abroad.

Lila López Festival, held in San Luis Potosí, is an international contemporary dance festival. It is the oldest dance festival in Mexico and one of the most significant dance festivals of Latin America. During the festival Susanna Leinonen also leads a four-day master class for local dancers.
